Denver Rental License Inspections
“Healthy Residential Rentals for All”
Denver’s newly passed Residential Rental License Policy has passed city council. While this is a big change for the city, it joins over 60% of the country by having some type of rental licensing program.
The main goal of the program is to ensure that renters are living in safe and healthy homes in an environment where rental rates have substantially outpaced incomes.
We plan to be at the forefront of providing the required rental license inspection. Our company has been providing rental license inspections in the city of Boulder for the last 10+ years, which gives us the experience needed to offer an efficient and scalable Denver Rental License Inspection service.
At Scott Rental Inspections, a division of Scott Home Services, LLC, we are offering inspections now and have 4 certified inspectors! Call or schedule today.

While most of the items on this list are pretty standard, there are a few small details that may trip you up. We wrote an article on how to pass your inspection. Read more below.
